The White Planet paints a broad fresco of the Arctic, rich in action and emotion. Together, some of the world’s best nature filmmakers have pooled their talent to bring their intimacy with this little understood and poorly recognized part of the world to the viewer. The animals are present in full force, showing their ability to survive as well as their vulnerability in a changing environment. The film allows the simple, natural beauty of the Arctic to speak for itself and, silently, it makes a plea in favour of this strong yet fragile part of the world.
